    Just to share my experience and lesson I got this season.
    This season I practice inbreeding b/w mother and son and all attempts were a failure.
    First clutch 6 eggs were laid and only chick hatched and 5 DIS.The chick growth was very slow and died at 65 days old with crop full
    On second round 4 eggs were laid,1st fertile later DIS and 3 infertile.
    In third and final clutch 4 eggs laid again and first egg dead in shell after week and still there is 1 fertile egg with 2 infertile.

    On the other side
    Result b/w Pairing of father and daughter gave me somewhat different result with few clear eggs and 50% hatchlings which r healthy and growing normally.

    Any body suffered the same experience in the past or present,plz share because i know some breeders who inbreed his birds with pairings described above and than use unrelated birds to widen the genes.I have been told that first generation chicks r born normal but problem occures later if we continue to breed related birds with out introducing unrelated blood but attempts r failure on first generation.

    Inbreeding is often met with infertility, for good reasons. It's why the pharaohs of Egypt started producing fewer children, despite having many wives, especially in Akhenaton's reign. I believe he produced all females, because he was mated to his sisters. You might want to branch out a litte, and perhaps go grandfather/granddaughter, or vice versa. Just don't continue inbreeding the resulting chicks from the first inbreeding. You might need to bring in some fresh stock to rejuvenate your bloodlines.

    Hi Usman keep trying. Without inbreeding no new strains would have been established.

    Gee whenever I see mating in my aviary occurring between father-daughter, mother-son etc, I want to turn the garden hose on the filthy little buggers! It gets wierd though when you see big Daddy mating with his granddaughter who also is his daughter!!! Urrk, I need a shower and a lie down...

    lol a similar thing happened to one of my uncles who noticed that father/daughter mated and the daughter layed eggs. He separated them and threw away the eggs. I just think its not worth the complications and health related problems, better to get some new stock in and breed budgies who aren't related.
